Pokie Review

Head out West

Head out West and search for those golden nuggets in Explosive Reels, the dynamite pokie from GameArt. Very much in line with classic Aristocrat game, Where's the Gold ™, this classic Pokie follows the fortunes of gold prospectors! Good luck!

Explosive Reels

The Game

Explosive Reels is set out in the standard pokie structure we all know and love. There are five reels and twenty paylines. By matching three symbols (or two in some cases) consecutively from left to right, you can win cash. There are ten symbols in all, and the most valuable symbols are the scatter symbol (which also doubles as the wild card in this game), the trolley full of gold and the gold prospector symbol. If you're lucky enough to match five scatter or wild symbols, you'll take home as many as one thousand coins, and if you hit the jackpot and reveal five prospector symbols, you could win two thousand five hundred coins!

The scatter/wild card symbol in Explosive Reels is a sizeable bunch of dynamite sticks. This symbol can fill in for all other symbols on the reels, increasing your chances of making a match. With a scatter symbol, matching three, four or five bunches of dynamite anywhere on the screen will earn you a valuable ten free spins.

During your free spins, the bonus feature is triggered. One random symbol will be covered by a stick of dynamite, and if it explodes it will take several lines with it and boost your winnings! There is also a fun gamble feature that gives you the chance to double your winnings at any time. Just press the 'gamble' button and guess correctly whether the revealed playing card is black or red to win! You can continue gambling correctly up to five times to keep add to your cash.

The Look

Behind the reels, there is a Wild West-style horizon with rocks jutting up out of the landscape below the blue cloudless sky. The symbols themselves are beautifully created. There is a greedy prospector eyeing his gleaming gold, a cheeky smiling donkey, a lantern and shovel (the tools every good prospector wouldn't be caught without), a trolley full of gold nuggets and the standard playing-card symbols.

A fun element of the game is the fact that when you make a match using the scatter symbol (the bunch of dynamite sticks), the sticks will animate and explode while a celebratory tune plays! The Gold Rush theme is one that is common to free pokies games - on this site alone we have Where's the Gold ™, Gold Diggin, More Gold Diggin and Gold Rush!

The Developer

Exploding Reels is a game created by GameArt, a relative newcomer to the pokie world that is steadily attracting fans.

Explosive Reels is a fun and fast-paced pokie that you're sure to keep coming back to. Have a go on desktop or mobile. Who knows, you might even strike gold. Just be warned: you'll have to beat the prospector to it!
